I haven't put entries in the fstab file to automount an ISO each boot,
but when I've mounted an ISO from a command line, I've never had to
specify read-only, it managed to work that out for itself.  And I would
have thought that the iso9660 filetype would have read-only as its
default options.

I'm wondering if Frank had actually specified "rw" or just thought it
was the default when neither "ro" or "rw" were specified?
